  1. If you were to throw a contest where all contestants submit a card effect for the same custom-made artwork, what would that custom artwork be of? 

    I was thinking of a Neos + BEWD Fusion, but it's pretty unrealistic.

      That sounds extremely interesting, ngl. I was thinking of something that falls in line with an old(ish?) archetype that could provide a slight revamp to it. Something like a Blackwing, Fire Fist, Cyber Dragons, Gladiator Beast card. Something that could help out an underused archetype/deck with just 1 card.

      This seems like a good place to start. They've also done a BEWD+Obelisk fusion and Ra+Gilford, though they have some other fusions that might be worth a look.

      I'm a big fan of b98x's work, I've been watching their works for a while now. I already created the Neos + BEWD fusion, but I'm trying to figure out the right context to release it. For a card effect contest, however, I want to make a card art that seems more realistic for the meta rather than something that just looks badass but not necessarily realistically playable.

  2. Sinnoh is my favorite region and I'm happy they're remaking it. But from the trailer, it just looks kinda lazy. They got rid of some of the cool aspects from Sword/Shield. There's also no new battle mechanic or anything like that. Granted, it's the very first trailer so they still might be saving up reveals, but kinda let-down by this.

      @Mr Melon Yea regardless I'm probably going to get it since I loveeeee Sinnoh the most. Just wish it took the OR/AS remake style for this :/

      Also, I love Cyndaquil but hot take: I think Typhlosion is ugly and wayyyyy to overrated

    3. Mr Melon

      Mr Melon

      Huh, really?  I always found Typhlosion the most aesthetically pleasing out of the three Johto final evos; Meganium felt a bit boring to me and Feraligatr's sprite in Gen 2 felt like they were trying to do too much.

      EDIT: Oh gosh, I just saw the 3d model for Typhlo.  Why'd they massacre my boi?

    4. PrimeAceJohn

      PrimeAceJohn

      The thing about Typhlosion, is that its design is way too simple for me. If the fire on its back was always on, kinda like Charizard's tail, then I wouldn't be as critical. I personally like the Hoenn starters evolutions the most. I could pick any 1 of the 3 and I would be happy. Johto is the one I actually like the least. But I admit that I know these opinions aren't the most popular lol.

  3. I'm looking for a couple of judges to help me decide a winner for a card contest that finishes tomorrow on my DA. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

      It good! Got 6 pretty good submissions. Announcing the winner later today.

  4. This is the place where I got started with card-creating and I went on to DeviantArt and left this place completely. That's kinda f'd up of me. 

    I want to encourage some of my watchers on DeviantArt to come onto here, too, within my limited capacity. If any of you guys have any ideas, I'm all ears.

      Slightly related topic, is anyone keep track of our new card maker beta test? I guess we need to make it up and running for the new members you bring john. This site has ups and downs but in general this is a good idea worth trying. Make sure anything tiddy up before that IMO

    3. Rayfield Lumina

      Rayfield Lumina

      Not much activity as of late in the beta testing, it seems we pretty much found most issues it has, and it's likely YCMaker is working on them. Last post from YCMaker in this regard was on February 5. Arcadia warlic asked  on February 14 if there was an estimated release date for the card maker, question that hasn't been replied so far.

    4. PrimeAceJohn

      PrimeAceJohn

      @Dokutah Jolly That's nice. But I also don't have like this crazy big following on DeviantArt so I think calling it a "swarm" is overstating it by a lot lol. 

      Honestly, I'm sure that most people who watch me on DA are already aware of this site. A lot of them are card-makers, themselves and often times I see them post cards with this site's card maker. 

      The point of wanting to do this is to simply make them more aware of the community and layout this place has, which is why I always enjoyed this place. In all honesty, I wouldn't expect that many people to even go as far as make an account, but letting them at least know about this place is more important for me.

      @Arcadia warlic he was actually my favorite character in all of yugioh manga, for me. His deck, his attitude, and everything was amazing. 

    3. Sleepy

      Let's see... Chazz.
      Animie Chazz's Ojamas were annoying at times and prevented him from getting some cooler stuff, and I like them during the period of his arc when he's getting humbled and untapping power with their help, but at some point I think Armed Dragon should have taken a bigger spotlight as his special card. At the end that growing dragon was nothing but a cool prize set he assembled with no spirit showing up.

      Chazz seemed to be built up to be the second best potential hero at the academy if Jaden ever wasn't in the picture, but his plot relevant duels other than to his brothers were actually a detriment to the plot like his brainwash by Sartorious. The series always ended up prioritizing his character growth to the detriment of the rest of the cast whenever those 2 things were in conflict. Didn't the Sacred Beasts wake up because of that duel Chazz had with Alexis? My memory is foggy on that particular. I do remember that Don Zaloog's way of resolving the Dark Scorpions gave Chazz the tools to comeback and that's like the writers going "Chazz doesn't have a possible way to come back from this if they do that properly, what do we do?" xD

      I like Chazz losing to Bastion and Bastion going "that was tailormade against Jaden and isn't even complete yet lol" but Chazz should have had a rematch down the line there... they just left it at that. Well there was the Society of light duel they had later on but Bastion was gonna win and threw the game because he actually wanted to join them...... Bastion was better in the anime than the manga.

      Chazz has a number of good things and planted seeds for development that for some reason almost never combined with the main plot in a positive manner for the heroes.... still, I'm curious on why so many people like manga Chazz more. I think the manga stripped him of his goofy side (which admittedly the anime overdid) and just made him "the cool rival with a cool ace". Are his brothers even part of the manga? What's his manga deal? Honestly I never found a place where I could finish reading the manga past the duel where Splendid Venus first appears so probably missing a bunch, so yeah.....

      @Sleepy The GX manga is the first yugioh manga I read so I may be biased when saying it's the best yugioh manga (imo). But that's the thing, what made Chazz annoying for me was when he became a goofy comedic relief. If he started off that way, I wouldn't be upset. The way his character started off in the anime was to show the distinction between class systems, Jaden of the low class and Chazz of the high class - both evenly matched (although Jaden ended up making him look like a toddler duelist).

       I think having that obvious gap between the two was important and necessary for the show. Then they humbled him from his position, which I'm fine with, but they did so and took away all this swagger that he had. In the manga, they got rid of all that and they made him the badass I felt the anime originally intended him to be.  

      They also gave him a more consistent Deck style. In the anime, he was just picking up and dropping off a new deck. As you pointed, the Ojama's did no justice for Chazz. They tried making comic relief for the comic relief and it just all became obnoxious. 

      The thing about Chazz's brothers though was a pretty good storyline for Chazz, I'll admit.

      I most likely will after the entire project is finished

  8. When I was a kid, I remember trading my UR Buster Blader for this kid's E-HERO Avian because I wanted to be like Jaden Yuki.

    F*** Jaden Yuki.

    Making Avian the most lackluster HERO was criminal beyond measures.

      @Sleepy Funny you say that because I'm actually doing a classic HERO retrain project on my DeviArt (kinda weird to plug like this I guess). I released my Avian, Burstinatrix, and Clayman retrains so far. I have them all finished and I'm releasing a retrain everyday then doing a lore/explanation to these retrains at the end.

      And yes. I can tell you that it is, indeed, a lot of fun.

      Well Jaden didn't get Neos until pretty late in the GX era. So I would go with the fact that Jaden is the only protag that didn't have a 2500 ATK ace for most of his respective series. So in all fairness, as clean as the E-Heroes played despite all of them being Lv4 or lower vanillas really says a lot. Sadly, the fact stands that if you put any 2 protags up against each other with a complete set of 75 cards. Atem would come out on top due to fact that his deck has far too many power plays and adding the protags' respective rivals to the mix may complicate things. But I feel Jaden/Zane may actually be able to beat Yugi/Kaiba and Yusei/Jack.

    3. ~British Soul~

      ~British Soul~

      @Nobody Really Yeah, he didn't get Neo until like a year into GX, but the length of time he had it in his deck versus when it wasn't was about 45-50% longer, so I'd say he got it around mid-GX rather than late imo. (even IRL, GX had 13 main sets and Neos was in the 6th, POTD)

    4. Nobody Really

      Nobody Really

      Just saying that Jaden and Zane could actually do well against the protag/rival pairings if you compared their early decks. I mean, Jaden beat Ancient Gear Golem in his debut duel with Flare Wingman. Yugi never actually managed to defeat Blue-Eyes White Dragon with anything short of Exodia.

      I wanna get into the habit of putting image credits on the card because I want to develop a card game and I think that is one thing games like pokemon, mtg and such do right.

      Yeah, I generally use imgur, but it doesn't matter so much as long as it shows up as a picture on here.  Posting a link (even if it is to a set of images) tends to be a bit sketchy.

  16. F*cking hell... I just might say it.. I think 5D's is the best of the YGO Animes. Granted, it doesn't hold up all the way through, but just wow definitely ahead of it's time. DM is f*cking amazing too, don't get me wrong, but 5D's took things on it's head and succeeded at it. 

  17. Out of curiosity, which card do consider as Playmaker's ace card? Usually it's between Firewall Dragon and Decode Talker. I always felt like Firewall was his ace and Decode Talker was more of his Junk Warrior (like a sub-ace). But in a lot of Konami advertising they make it seem like Decode is his ace (i.e. Duel Power box art).

      Ahh gotchu. Yeah I only watched the first-half of Vrains which is great, I didn't really like the back-half. However, I don't really remember Yusei ever using Goyo Guardian lol. 

    3. Sleepy

      Sleepy

      Decode is absolutely the Ace, but I suspect Firewall was originally intended to be it. Much like how ZeXal actually has a list of parallel elements with DM and Arc V gave a little bit of a special spot to the GX-like setting, VRAINS was meant to draw parallels with 5DS, so the serious older main character performs out of the law with his 2300 ATK ace early on, and eventually gets a dragon that follows the ATK pattern of all main characters in the franchise. However, Firewall actually became a nuisance to the game IRL and list hits tried to circle around it a few times until they had to inevitably ban it. With that they wouldn't really keep promoting it in the show. They went for alternative bosses from other mechanics Yusaku learned instead, Cynet Magician (Ritual), Cyberse Clock Dragon (Fusion), Cyberse Quantum Dragon (Synchro), all got the 2500 stats, but after that they decided to make alternative Firewalls. Firewall EXceed Dragon (Xyz), and finally Firewall Dragon Dark Fluid (Link 5). None of which require the original Firewall for anything. Though Decode was consistently the ace the most by far.

    4. PrimeAceJohn

      PrimeAceJohn

      Hmm yeah that is very interesting. That was one of the gripes I had with Vrains in general. When it came to Yusaku and Revolver, you never really knew what their ace truly and clearly was. Call me a traditionalist, but I always appreciated having that 1 clear signature ace monster (granted, I'm somewhat excited for Sevens so maybe I wouldn't consider myself a YGO traditionalist all too much lol). Decode definitely had the most consistency especially with how often it was Summoned throughout the anime. I just always had the thought that the 25K beater Dragon/Warrior/Spellcaster-esque monster (I know Firewall is not a Dragon, but it follows that look) was the Protagonist's Ace. But it seems like they are gearing away towards that with Sevens Roads Magician reinforcing that idea. 

  18. I know I'm super late in the game, but I just learned about the whole World Legacy lore and it's pretty fascinating. I always wished they would do like a 3-4 episode one-offs of these lores.
